    UPS employees put out blaze after package catches fire: Secaucus officials - NJ . com

    A small package caught fire around 9:30 p.m. while on a conveyor belt at the UPS processing facility at 493 County Ave., according to Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli, who is also part of the town's volunteer Fire Department.

    UPS employees had already extinguished the fire when Secaucus volunteer firefighters arrived, Gonnelli said. Company spokesman Dan Cardillo says UPS has designated first-responders who are trained in safety procedures.

    The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but officials believe the contents of the package may have been a major contributing factor, Gonnelli says.
